The American Red Cross is reminding the area with hotter temperatures making their way back, take little precautions to stay safe.
Officials say that spending too much time or over-doing it in extreme heat and humidity makes it hard for our bodies to stay cool.
When our bodies can’t cool down enough, we can suffer from heat-related illness.
Remember to Stay Aware and watch for weather warnings, Keep Cool and seek relief during the hottest part of the day, Stay Hydrated with plenty of fluids even if you don’t feel thirsty, Limit Outdoor Activities during the heat and Stay Connected with those around you.
Too much outdoor exposure can lead to Heat Cramps, Heat Exhaustion and even Heat Stroke.
As with severe weather there are several key terms that you need to pay close attention to so that you and those you care about can stay safe or know when to call and ask for help.
